Demi Lovato Apologizes On Behalf Of Fans For Death Threats To Kathy Griffin
Following Lady Gaga’s vomit-inducing SXSW performance, Demi Lovato took to Twitter to voice her disapproval of the stunt, mainly because she felt it glorified eating disorders.
The “Neon Lights” singer’s words caused some backlash among Gaga’s fans, with many defending her actions in the name of art. Still, Gaga herself did not respond and Demi later stated she remains a “Little Monster” regardless of her opinions.
Now, Lovato has become involved in another Twitter feud, this time with Kathy Griffin!
According to E! News, the drama began during a Twitter Q&A when Griffin was asked which celeb she thinks is the “biggest douche” and she said, “Probably [Demi] Lovato…Plus she should calm the f down bout Lady Gaga gettin barfed on.”
US Weekly reports that Griffin has since deleted the tweet, but not before Demi was alerted!
In response to Griffin’s diss, Demi tweeted a picture of herself with the 53-year-old comedian/actress in the background that featured the caption: “Only a ‘douche’ to people I can’t stand.”
From there, Lovato’s fans jumped onto the bandwagon and started tweeting violent death threats at Griffin, who fueled the fire by retweeting some of the most inappropriate posts.
With the situation quickly spiraling out of control, Lovato returned to Twitter to tell her followers to chill out, writing, “I love you guys so much but y’all gotta chill with sending hate towards other people. Regardless of what they say or do.. The cruel things some of you are saying can really, REALLY hurt people. It’s called cyber-bullying and somethings should NEVER be wished upon EVER. No matter WHAT. It makes me so sad to see how mean people can really be after all I’ve spoken out about anti-bullying. Be an example for other haters. I know my #Lovatics are better than that. I really appreciate you guys always having my back but this is going way too far. Please spread [peace] not hate…”
The 21-year-old singer then made it a point to send Griffin an apology tweet, though Griffin has yet to publicly respond:
And the drama continues…can’t we all just get along?
